Strategic Framework

We are delighted to share with you MassHire Metro North Workforce Board’s (MNWB) new Strategic Framework. The Strategic Framework outlines MNWB’s over-arching priorities for the next five years and some of the key goals we seek to achieve.

At our March 16, 2022 Strategic Framework Webinar, we shared our Mission, Vision and Plan for working with you,
our partners, to grow an increasingly strong and equitable Workforce Development System in Metro North!

This Strategic Framework is the result of a year-long process that included Community Action Partners, MNWB staff and Board, and many of you, our partners and supporters. We want to thank each and every one of you that participated in some way in the development of this plan, it would not have been possible without you.
